What You Can Do In 2 Days In Apollo Bay

Want an action-packed Apollo Bay weekend away? Here is our suggested 2 day itinerary:

Day 1

Day 1 begins with an early morning swim at the beach; What better way to start your 2 days in Apollo Bay?! Next up is a kayak to the Australian Fur Seal Colony where you can also enjoy some snorkelling. After an active morning, it's time to try out one of the local spots for lunch. You’ve got a great choice of cafes, restaurants, bakeries, international cuisine and more. For the afternoon, it’s a helicopter or aeroplane flight to the 12 Apostles via the Shipwreck coast and Otway rainforest – what a stunning way to see this magnificent region. To finish an awesome action-packed day, grab some fresh fish & chips and head to the beach or try one of the local restaurants offering the ‘catch of the day’ to enjoy the freshest of fresh seafood (Apollo Bay is known as the crayfish capital!).

Day 2

On day 2 you’re getting out on the water on one of the local fishing charters. Take in the stunning scenery and maybe you’ll be lucky enough to catch a flat head, snapper, shark or even tuna.

To wrap up a fantastic 2 days in Apollo Bay, your last activity is a tour guided by a conservationist to discover the local wildlife and learn about the local ecology. Before you head off, grab an ice cream to enjoy on your trip back home.
